The California Rice Commission held its fourth annual SushiMaster competition last night in Sacramento and it was a battle between chefs from Fresno, Hollywood, San Diego, San Francisco and Sacramento’s own Billy Ngo, chef/owner of Kru. A few months back, a few SacFoodies raved about Kru’s sushi (apparently the Ziggy roll reigns supreme according to SacFoodie palates), so we were definitely rooting on our hometown chef. However, his victory will come another day because this year’s SushiMaster is Chef Tomaharu Nakamura of Sanraku Four Seasons in San Francisco. I lived in San Francisco for five years, and for two of those years, walked by Sanraku Four Seasons every day, and never once went in. Foolish, foolish me.
So Sacramentans, what’s your favorite sushi joint in the Capitol city? I’d have to say mine is Nishiki. The Capitol and McHenry rolls are scrumptious!
